It’s the great Pumpkin Festival! Anyone who ventures into the growing pumpkin patch at Morning Glory Farm next Saturday, Oct. 13, need only wait until 11 a.m. for sightings of — if not the Great Pumpkin — at least pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, pumpkin squares and, well, you get the idea.
Nonbelievers, too, can gobble up an Island-grown burger, carve their own Halloween pumpkin, crawl through the hay bale maze, or join the pumpkin tossing competition.
It was Linus who said, “The Great Pumpkin always picks the most sincere pumpkin patch to rise out of. He’s just gotta pick this pumpkin patch. He’s just gotta! Look around. You can see that there’s not a sign of hypocrisy anywhere. Nothing but sincerity reaching out as far as the eye can see.”
The Pumpkin Festival at Morning Glory continues until 4 p.m. at the farm on the Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Road in Edgartown.
